Frightened and timid
Anxious and scared
She never speaks up
She never would dare.

Told what to do
Her opinions deferred
Her feelings don’t matter
So seldom are heard.

Stifled, subdued
She sits all alone
Keeps thoughts to herself
When she is at home.

But, in cyberspace
Her spirit thrives.
She expresses herself
It’s where she comes alive.

Respected and noted
Her voice and opinions
On social media
She matters to millions.

But, back at home
Passive and shy
She never questions
She ‘d never ask “why”.

Her husband and children
Tell her what to do
She follows their lead
She never argues.

She sits at the table
Sipping her tea
They know she will always
